In brief: Bowel regiment

Add a bowel regiment to your daily routine.
Use laxative, water, fiber, stool softner, to achieve two soft bowel movements daily. Softer and smaller caliber will help your fissure heal.

Agree with excellent answer above.
Sitz baths (soaking your bum in a bath of warm to slightly hot water) will help. Also, may see a doc for a prescription for a steroid cream with Lidocaine (pain med). Other creams can be used to treat the spasm associated with fissures.
